Welcome home, First Church Family and Friends!
One of the goals I set for myself this year was developing servant-leaders. The Priesthood of All Believers is one of my favorite reformed understandings because it says that every person has equal potential to minister on God’s behalf. Regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, length of church membership, or experience of the faith, every single one of God’s people has potential to serve.
God is on the move blessing our church with servant-leaders. Here is what happened this week alone:
Scores of you came out to sign-up for our many committees and ministries. Thank you for being good stewards of your talents and gifts in this place.
Elder Barbara Cummings is preaching this Sunday - the first time in a long time, I’m told, that a female elder has brought our community a word from God. Yippee, Barbara! Yippee, God!
Elder Patrick Tirino was elected Clerk of Session Monday evening, following in the footsteps of our longest serving clerk, Marcia Smith, who became elder and clerk in the same week! Thank you, First Church, for keeping, Patrick, and our entire Session in your daily prayers.
Two 2nd graders from our community, Henry and Petal, volunteered in the Food Pantry this week - much to the delight of our guests.
Servant-leadership requires audacity on our part to believe we can actually answer God’s call. Servant-leadership requires humility on our part, that has us constantly asking, “Who am I to think I can minister on God’s behalf?!” Too much audacity, not enough humility, or vice versa, spells disaster. Servant-leaders need both to serve like the Christ we follow. Thank you, First Church for your audacity and humility to serve. And thank you for supporting those who have answered God’s call with their own, “Yes!” #youareloved#pcusa#firstchurchbrooklyn#firstchurch#riseandgrind#riseandshine#brooklynheights#brooklyn#presbyterianchurch#presbyterian#tgif#tgifridays#morningdevotion#morningthoughts#dalilama

What are some of the biggest concerns when working with the senior population? It's important as personal trainers that we individualize each program to our client and their needs. Often disease or current fitness level will impede growth. #kipsonline#personaltrainer
